That felt good to finally say out loud! For the past few years we’ve been working tirelessly with Digital Extremes to develop this game in secret. We’re excited that it is finally in a place where it’s ready to be shared! Suffice to say, today was a huge milestone for all of us.
Wayfinder is a game we’ve aspired to make for a very long time. All of us have cherished memories and stories tied to gaming with friends and family. A genre we all felt encompassed these beloved moments best was the MMO; with Wayfinder, we set out to capture that feeling, but in our own way. That meant creating a world that expands for years to come, with vast social systems to encourage adventures with friends, old and new!
One of the reasons we partnered with Digital Extremes is their understanding of the community’s importance when crafting a game like Wayfinder. They’ve built trust by creating games that are free and fair for all. These are core philosophies we embraced, and we are committed to using your feedback to shape the game, now and well into the future.
This announcement is just the start of a massive journey, one we’re in for the long haul. Before we fully release the game, we want to ensure it’s looking and feeling polished; what better way than to let people play it! Starting next week (GULP!) we’ll be rolling out a very small test under NDA on PC, followed by another test exclusively on PlayStation 5, as we work toward Early Access and the eventual free-to-play release on as many platforms as possible!
The world of Wayfinder is meant to evolve, with new characters, weapons, quests, areas and more. It’s a game that will improve, grow and expand for years to come thanks to your involvement, and your voice. We’re hoping you’ll join us on this thrilling adventure.
From everyone here at Airship Syndicate, thank you for being part of this journey.
